Re: stopped singulair-withdrawal symptoms? help!
Anytime I wanted to stop taking a medication (with my doctor's approval), whether for allergy, or asthma or blood pressure, etc., I have always weened myself off the medication by either taking the medication every other day, for a week or two; or by gradually cutting down the daily medication dose so that the withdrawal symptoms would not be too bad, and that withdrawal would not be a shock to my system.
On the other hand, if your body needs singulair in order to prevent an asthma attack, you are losing your protection against asthma and are at risk for increased and possibly serious breathing problems without this beneficial medication.
